Then I realized I didn't have any fall colored candles to go inside... all I had was a bunch of silver candles left over from the wedding. Luckily I did have some pretty fall ribbon from Michael's so I channeled my inner Tim Gunn and "made it work."
Here's how to snazz up a boring ol' candle with ribbon.
Step 1: Attach the end of the ribbon to the candle with two straight pins.
Step 2: Wrap the ribbon tightly around the rest of the candle. (Please pardon the cast claw...)
Step 3: Finish by wrapping the final row twice, then cutting the ribbon and attaching with two more pins.
**Note: I'm not planning to burn this candle so I wrapped the ribbon all the way to the top. If I did want to burn it, I would have started 3/4 of the way down.
Easy as that, I have a lovely new fall candle and I think it looks great!
